Paper craft project no. 82: Hello

2013-11-18 CAS Hello

Here’s a CAS card (4.5″ by 6″) I created while my vegan macaroni and cheese was baking in the oven. I thought I’d give our rice cooker a break today and besides, firing up the oven would make the kitchen nice and toasty warm. I had 15 minutes so I stamped away.

I masked off the card base so I have about 1.5″ of space to stamp the “hello” stamp. I stamped it once in tuxedo black ink then stamped it repeatedly in antique linen distress ink. I lightly sponged the area with old paper distress ink. Next, I cut 2 thin strips of kraft cardstock and used those as borders. On scrap cardstock, I stamped the old typewriter image, fussy cut it, and then adhered it onto my card with foam dots. I finished off the card by rounding the bottom corners.

For the card’s layout, I used the sketch on Seize the Sketch #8. I’m also linking this card to the following:

Thanks for stopping by! Give someone a big hug today :-)
